459. Father, We Praise Thee

1 Father, we praise Thee, now the night is over;
Active and watchful, stand we all before Thee;
Singing, we offer, prayer and meditation:
Thus we adore Thee.

2 Monarch of all things, fit us for Thy mansions;
Banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
Bring us to heaven, where Thy saints united
Joy without ending.

3 All holy Father, Son and equal Spirit,
Trinity bless├Ęd, send us Thy salvation;
Thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding
Through all creation.
